Kingdom donates a “pop-up cop” to boost road safety

Kingdom Housing Association has continued its support for road safety campaigns in Fife by donating a ‘pop-up cop’ to a Glenrothes primary school.

Kingdom staff members Dave Roy and Alana Anderson visited pupils and teachers of Newcastle Primary School in Glenrothes to hand over a “pop up police sign” advising drivers to exercise caution when driving near schools.

Thanks to Kingdom Housing Association, the pupils are now the proud owners of the sign and it will be deployed in due course.

Dave Roy, Kingdom’s health and safety officer, said: “We take part in the Brake Road Safety Week each year and this year decided to donate one of the signs to a local Primary School. The children and teachers at Newcastle PS are running a competition to give the pop up police officer a name.”

Community development police officers Martyn Reidie and Daniel Forbes were there with Dave and Alana to hand over the pop-ups.

They held a question and answer session on road safety where the kids talked about not parking on zig zag’s and pedestrian crossings.

Dave added: “The pop-ups have been working highly successfully in various schools across Fife now for much of the year and I would hope that the story will be the same at Newcastle Primary.”
